SIMFEROPOL, March 12. /TASS/. The top figures of the Crimean leadership have declared on Thursday that they will not go on vacation abroad even if the sanctions list were dropped.
"If the sanctions against me and Sergey Aksyonov (Head of Crimea's administration) are dropped tomorrow we will definitely not go there," Chairman of the State Council of Crimea Vladimir Kostantinov told journalists on Thursday. "They should change their attitude. They should go over Crimea’s history from beginning to end so as to apologize for humiliating the Crimean population," Konstantinov said.
Sergey Aksyonov, the head of the administration of Crimea, said he was planning no vacation for the time being and was not going anywhere abroad. He has dismissed the western sanctions against the Crimean politicians as "pointless". "A child may be given any toy to stop it crying. Let them impose their sanctions if they have nothing better to do," Aksyonov said.
Nineteen officils of Crimea are on the sanction lists adopted by the United States, Canada and EU countries. The most prominent figures won the list are Head of the Crimean administration Sergey Aksyonov, Speaker of the Crimean parliament Vladimir Konstantinov, Chairman of the Election Commission Mikhail Malyshev, senators Olga Kovitidi and Sergey Tsekov, Prosecutor Natalia Poklonskaya.
